Starting with perfectly pure ingredients, each batch of artisan oil from La Tourangelle is unique and hand-crafted in Woodland, CA. The nuts and herbs are hand-roasted in cast iron kettles, then expeller-pressed, lightly filtered and bottled. Their oils are very flavorful with rich colors.

  • Pumpkin Seed Oil– should not be cooked due to its low heat point but makes a great finish for salad dressing, soup, pasta, spreads and baked goods, and more. 250mL canister.
  • Roasted Hazelnut Oil– delicious in salad dressing, pasta, and on meat, fish, and baked pastries. Great butter substitute; works best with low heat. 1,000mL canister.
  • Roasted Walnut Oil– rich nutty taste and light color. Use in baking, salads, pasta, sauces, or on grilled fish or meat. Works well with medium-high heat. Available by the gallon.
  • Roasted Pecan Oil– full-bodied, intense flavor; wonderful on baked goods; a fragrant addition to sauces or drizzled on pasta or greens. Works well with medium-high heat. 250mL canister.
  • Roasted Almond Oil– good sub for olive oil; adds subtle almond flavor to any dish. Works well with medium-high heat. 1,000mL canister.
  • Basil Infused Oil– fragrant basil flavor perfect for pesto, caprese salad, grilled chicken or fish, or as a dipping oil for bread. Works well with high heat. 250mL canister.
  • Avocado Oil– rich emerald green oil; thick with a subtle buttery flavor. Delicious in uncooked items like salads and dips, but also ideal for cooking because it has a higher smoke point than olive oil. 1,000mL canister.
  • Toasted Sesame Seed Oil- golden brown oil with bold, nutty flavor ideal for vinaigrettes, stir-fry, and marinades. Works well in medium-high heat applications. 1,000mL canister.
  • Grapeseed Oil– light, neutral flavor and a very high smoke point make this oil best for stir-fries and sautés; also makes a lovely addition to marinades. Available by the gallon. 
  • Organic Virgin Coconut Oil– organic coconuts pressed within 4 days of being hand harvested. Pure coconut taste and beautiful texture, perfect for cooking, baking, dressings, or frying. 15oz canister.
